1712. That stomach turning number is the number of Palestinians no longer on this earth because Israel considered them expendble. Israel does not care that they were mothers to children. Israel doesnt care that they were children who will now kick soccer balls around in heaven. Israel cant hope comprehend that many were fathers who longed to hug their daughters one more time. Among the dead were grandfathers and grandmothers who will never celebrate another grandson’s smile.

1712. Israel doesnt care.


About Amr Khalifa

An analyst, a political comentator on the uber complex Egyptian and MENA scene. I may not have every answer but I know the questions to ask. When not publishing in Ahram Online, Mada Masr, Daily News Egypt and Muftah I love the dynamic of the short story. If you adore the written word you have come to the right place. Pull up a chair and join me for a cup of literary tea.
